Lions Mane tab with lyrics by Iron And Wine - Easy chords and tabs for guitar

Iron And Wine – Lions Mane tab

Iron & Wine - Lion's Mane
from "The Creek Drank the Cradle" (2002)
Mapped by: C. MacInnis

This is my first Iron & Wine tab, and I am proud to submit this correct version of the
beautiful opening track from "The Creek Drank the Cradle".

I wish I could say that I was entirely responsible for this tab and how correct it is,
but I am deeply indebted to "aarvid" and the other fine folks over at
http://www.passingafternoon.com who, on top of running a damn fine Iron & Wine fansite,
have a forum of great contributors who originally posted a barebones draft of this tab.
I have added the lyrics and mapped how the riffs fit into the structure of the song. You
should be able to pick up on it rather quickly with a bit of practice.

Support Samuel Beam. See Iron & Wine in concert and purchase his CDs. Truly a gem of a musician.

Enjoy!
